Our guide, Niccolo was punctual and provided a very comprehensive tour. It was well planned, including coffee and restroom breaks with Metro tickets for the commute to the various sites. He was very patient with us, giving us the time we needed to fully take in the richness of each site. And giving a wealth of insightful information at every site, information that provides for deeper appreciation of the Catholic Faith and Tradition. Niccolo came across sincerely zealous for helping Catholics with the increase in the understanding of the treasures of our Faith, we could not ask for a better guide in this respect. At the end of the tour (which ended late because of our time taken at each site), he even ensured we were set on our way to our next destination.
you have to bring a lot of time to see all the sights of the Archbasilica of San Giovanni in Laterano. The basilica with the treasury and the monastery are located in one building complex. The Holy Stairs and Scala Santa Sanctorum across the street. Nearby is the Lateran Baptistery and is probably the oldest baptistery in the world.
Really nice way to get around Rome. It's nice and fast, you can get everywhere and it's a lot more comfortable than a scooter! We rented the bike for 3 hours and this time it lasts easily and (about 40km) had half the battery left. Highly recommended!
Niccolò was an excellent guide. He sent us an email before, picked us up right on time, and took us through an historical and religious journey for our tour. He went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. What a wonderful afternoon!!!
Beautiful church. Get the audio guide for the true experience.
